The History of Programming

Are you a student of history? If so, then you may know when the Magna Carta was signed, or who fought at the Battle of Waterloo. But how sharp are your mind and memory when it comes to the history of programming? Personally, it’s something that I wanted to learn more about – especially since it can sometimes feel like we’re living in the Matrix and surrounded by code, code and more code. And so, I did some digging on the evolution of programming across the years, and here’s what I found:


The first electric computer (which bears zero resemblance to what we use today) was created in the 1940s, but it’s interesting to note that a few geniuses were toying with the concept long before that. Way back in 1837, a mathematician named Charles Babbage (rumor has it that his homeboys called him “C-BAB”) imagined the first analytical machine. Sadly, he never finished it, but his son (C-BAB2?) put it together in 1910. That baby was a pure steampunk creation in the literal sense – it used gears and steam. How badass is that? And so, we owe an eternal debt to the Babbages for creating the first programmable “computer”.
